An Agreement Can Protect Your Marriage
Many individuals have an aversion to marital contracts such as pre or postnuptial agreements. However, they can be an excellent tool in preparing for your marriage.
At Aiello and Associates, we bring decades of combined experience to our family law practice and use that experience to craft agreements tailored to each couple’s needs. Let us help you safeguard the future and put the law on your side.
What Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements Are
Often, there is some confusion around the purpose of pre and postnuptial agreements. We can explain:
- Prenuptial agreements are contracts relating to property made between two persons in contemplation of marriage. These agreements, when prepared properly, are enforceable in Michigan. Such an agreement enables you and your fiancé(e) to determine your own financial future should the marriage later be terminated by a court. This can allow for some financial certainty in the event of a divorce.
- Postnuptial agreements are contracts entered into between two people who are already married. Such an agreement is used to address how property rights and any rights or obligations for support are to be handled if the marriage later ends in divorce. A postnuptial agreement, when drafted and entered into properly, is enforceable in the event of divorce in Michigan. With a purpose similar to prenuptial agreements, this contract can allow for some financial certainty in the event of a divorce.
The main difference between the two is when the contract is entered into. At Aiello and Associates, our team will design your agreement to meet your exact needs, allowing you and your spouse to know that your interests are protected no matter what.
